Nine days after signing a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Capitals and Henrik Lundqvist is getting familiar with his new Washington D.C. surroundings.
With some athletic cartwheels in front of the monument along with his two daughters, Lundqvist also took his family to Capital One Arena where he'll be a shotstopper in net and a leader in the locker room.
Lundqvist, 38, had his contract bought out after 20 years with the New York Rangers earlier in the NHL offseason. Now, looking for a Stanley Cup title that has eluded his otherwise illustrious career, he's ready to get to work in Washington, where he'll likely split playing time with Ilya Samsonov.
While 2020 continues to provide unprecedented weirdness, the sight of "The King" in the District is certainly a welcome one for Capitals fans.
